and senior political reporter for politico and michael smerconish, a radio talk show host. let me start with you. there is an article today that said why president obama's gun plan may be doomed and said there strong indications that comprehensive legislation won't even see a vote on the house flew. you heard me. wasn't to put him on the pot, but i watched like you since new town and people said things have changed. i have yet to see and maybe you know of a few republican who is said things have changed and maybe it is time to put a man on assault weapons or some of the language ta is different than what we are hearing accusing the president of tyranny a power grab and the other accusations. >> let's separate two things. first of all, if you watch that press conference, a good solid one third was a direct appeal to the american people. he repeated himself over and over again. you heard congressman larson on the talking points and common sense. this is only going to happen if the american people want it to happen. you are going to see i think the president is prepared to use capital on t
with the headline saying that he could slow down obama's efforts on gun control. have the two of you talked about any sort of compromise legislation? guest: we've had some good conversations in terms of the leadup to this new congress. he called to congratulate me, and he and i have had some discussions about different things that we might work together on, but we have not specifically spoken about gun issues. host: immigration reform? guest: we have not talked about immigration reform in the broader sense and my predecessor, lamar smith, had extensive discussions with regard to the legislation that the house passed at the end of the last congress in december to address a program that i've been trying to eliminate for many years called the visa lottery or visa diversity program. 55,000 green cards given away not based on family reunification or job skills that are needed in the united states but based on pure luck. that was then tied to a program to encourage people who attend u.s. universities with science, technology, engineering and mathematics backgrounds to stay in the u.s., use those skills
. obama seems to be moving forwards that away from the deal cutting. >> maria theresa, glen is talking long game, but in terms of the short game, the playbook seems to be one that he has used a lot in the last couple of months/year, i'll say, which is vault over congress and take it to the people and make them move however incrementally. the question is do we think is that can happen? can he have that kind of win on gun control 1234. >> he did exactly what he should have done. obama care, he said i'm going to go to washington, i'm going to go to capitol hill and negotiates inside, and people will come with me. what he is saying is he is basically drawing a clear line in the sand. this is where i stand. the american people, i'm going to -- i'm going to speak to you directly, and i'm going to go ahead and volley it over to the senate and they'll pass it. this is not my doing. >> hopefully they'll introduce it to the floor of the senate. that in and of itself will be -- >> i think the fact that reid said he was luke warm to the response and didn't realize, wait a second, this is a bad pr
interesting piece in politico today talking about the breaking of the obama role. there was the breaking of the hastert rule. you say, a i will read to you your own words -- >> i love this part. >> this is the best sort of awkward, and also semi-embarrassing and charming part of the show. democrats have jokingly referred to what they call the obama rule enshrining the president's practice of not forcing legislative action on anything no matter how noble that can't pass both houses. he now appears willing to burn political capital by pressuring senate democrats to vote for a measure that is likely to die in the house. a symbolic gesture that sets the stage he hopes for more meaningful ones. i read that, and i thought am i depressed? you seem to suggest that there is failure built into these proposals, and that this is a -- >> this is something that the left has -- remember during the health care debate. obviously we talked about the public option. there has been a sense at various points that he backed off the tough fights because he knew he wasn't going to be able to turn a quick deal. t
inauguration everybody is talking about the second term and the issues that president obama will tackle in the next four years. which brings me to thele flowing question, are there any such things as women e's issues? you see traditionally women's issues were defined as policies that emerged from the women's domestic roles as wife and for example in a a bygone era, many thought that they were engaged in not global monetary policies, but then a wholeera of women were engaged with equal rights and reproduction rights, but women are not a class, but they are definitely partisan definition as demonstrate ed d the last election, and we may not have women issues, but we expect the women officeholders to shoulder the responsibility for these issues, whatever they are, get addressed and with the record number of women serving in congress, will will it change the way that congress works on issues or the issues it works on? jo joining me is amy awe cook author of the "cook report," and cath lynn srirock president of emily's list. and you work to get more women elected. is that because you believe
that your program is fair, and so i want you and president obama to get on the phone and get this thing before it turns into a bloody mess. >> well, that is marco rubio talking, but who we saw speaking there is bill o'reilly, and let's move forward. sop apparently bill o'reilly and myself can sit together and get it done. is there going to be bipartisan support to get this issue through? >> yes. and remember the last time the voices in the tv world and the radio world were far right and you have to kill it. and now folks say, you have to get it done. and the u.s. chamber of commerce is working with labor to make it happen. we are going to make it happen, and marco rubio is talking about things that we have been talking about over 10 years, and the republicans are coming forward to say what americans have been saying. the average american says to make it practical, and make it sensible and make it tough, but make it fair. >> do you any that the white house learned to listen on this, because it seemed that a lot of shift happened when the president took the executive step for the baby dre
-style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. [ applause ] >> that was president obama outlining a raft of legislations, proposals, and executive actions he intends to take to curb gun violence in this country. karen, let's talk about what the president just outlined there. we know he signed several executive actions, he signed several executive actions. among them, strengthening background checks, the ability of federal agencies to share information. also, perhaps long overdue, pushing forward a nomination of todd jones to be head of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. there's not been a director in six years. he also outlined, not a huge surprise, we've been talking about a lot of these measures in recent days, several new things he'd like congress to take action on, including universal background checks, the assault weapons ban he is going forward with, and a ban on high-capacity magazine clips, and a crackdown on gun trafficking, which has less to do, perhaps, with newtown, and more to do with the increased gun violence that we saw in intercities across the country.
is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. president obama is targeting the rights of law-abiding citizens instead of what caused the violence. that is a very strong response from someone who's talked about as a 2016 potential candidate. >> and he also accused the president of abusing his executive power in the 23 actions. when you read the 23 actions, frankly, these are very weak directives. there's not much more the white house could do. they've got a whole bunch of things out there, but to call it an overreach is a big, big stretch there. but you're right, andrea, that's presidential politics. the most important responses, though, on this front have come from the two people in charge of putting legislation on the floor of the house and the senate. and speaker boehner's spokesperson said we'll be happy to look at any proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not going to vote on anything unless they know it can pass the house. here we are, stalemate. >> exactly. >> back
. the suit against united was filed this morning. bill: martha what is next. martha: president obama is about to step into the news conference room, the press woman at the white house. he'll talk to reporters in the next hour. we'll talk to brit hume about what the president is planning for his second term and how republicans will respond. mr. brit hume in the house next, folks. we'll be right back. almost tastes like one of jack's cereals. fiber one. uh, forgot jack's cereal. [ jack ] what's for breakfast? um... try the number one! yeah, this is pretty good. [ male announcer ] over a third of a day's fiber. fiber one. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes she is. [ bop ] [ male announcer ] could've had a v8. 100% vegetable juice, with three of your daily vegetable servings in every little bottle. with three of your daily vegetable servings we replaced people with a machine.r, what? customers didn't like it. so why do banks do it? hello? hello?! if your bank doesn't let you talk to a real person 24/7, you need an ally. hello? ally bank. your money needs an ally. bill: 32 past. fox news
'm going to sign these orders. [applause] jon: president obama now will put pen to paper and sign some of the executive orders that he is issuing in concurrence with this announcement today at the white house. let's talk about it with bret baier the anchor of "special report." bret i was surprised, frankly at how much of this the president through promptly in congress' louisiana. we were expecting to hear about the executive orders that he was going to issue and he didn't talk about that very much. >> he talked about it but with that signature, jon there are 23 specific executive actions he is launching here. they are not all 23 specific executive orders that he's signing, but they are executive actions, and there is a long list of them. he did talk about the push for congressional action, including a sweeping new assault weapons ban. the white house suggesting that they'll support and work with democratic senator dianne feinstein with her legislation for an assault weapons ban, as well as a restriction on the ban on gun magazine of more than ten rounds, the ammunition magazine of more
, that there is so little trust that they feel that obama is bent on really achieving conquest over the republicans by the midterms, trying to isolate tea party republicans and not really coming to too much of a deal. you hear the president talk about, well, he'd be willing to make some modifications to the medicare program. i mean, he certainly is not willing to get into a negotiation over that because he thinks it's going to be one-sided. so can just underlines how far apart they are when it comes to any sort of big deal. and the more people i talk to around the hill, people who know the president, that we might be looking at much smaller deals to try to chip away at some of these issues rather than this concept of a grand bargain. >> chuck, we've gotten the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. horrible numbers for congress overall and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do an
